of housing to expend soma community stabilization fund dollars in the amount of $760,000. >> supervisor kim. >> thank you. i've introduced a resolution authorizing the mayor's office of housing to expend the soma community stabilization fund dollars in the amount of $760,000. this innovative fund, as many of you know, was approved as part of the rincon hill area plan that is intended to be used to address the issues of destabilization of residents and businesses in the south of market due to development in the rincon hill area. the fund that we are authorizing today is the third round of funding through the soma stabilization fund and is consistent with the latest strategic plan for the fund. as a south of market continues to grow and improve its new development and projects it is important that we continue to work on stabilizing current residents and businesses that have been a part of this neighborhood for decades. the stabilization fund gives us the opportunity to pilot tools and strategies outside of the mayor's office of housing's typical grant programs that are often restricted by gui

(applause). >> thank you. miss jackson. >> dr. espinola jackson, bayview hunter's point. a lot of statements have been made today. what i would really like you to do, i'm not here to oppose these appointments that are needed but at this point i think you should wait a while, at least until january because of the fact this is the time when a lot of change is happening in my community. i served on a joint housing committee with the redevelopment agency back in 1968 and the things that were supposed to happen in my community never did. you talk about affordable housing from the time the term affordable housing started being, i wanted to know affordable to whom because it's never been affordable to the people living in my community. the ami is the way of not having poor people living in san francisco. that need to be looked into. another th
on economic and employment support that prioritizes local residents. something so much like the soma stablization fund that we heard earlier. specifically i like, i want to create pathways and support around eviction prevention, down payment assistance, tenant repair and maintenance and healthy outcomes as well through support services from local nonprofit providers, lion martin, alliance aids health project and others. i'm committed in the seat of staying connected and accountable to the evolving concerns of residents, low income residents, through periodic check-ins with leaders who i have relationships with, with community housing partnership, mercy housing and others. and this of course is on top of my day-to-day work at the lgbt center where a majority of individuals who come through the door on a daily basis are low income, many extremely low income. so i want to reiterate my desire to serve in this seat on this committee and thank you for your time this afternoon. >> thank you, mr. wolff, thank you so much for coming back again to the rules committee. i just have a quick que
today. >> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is howard bloomberg, i live in south beach area of soma, have been there for, living there for 5 years. i came to the bay area in 2000 from the washington, dc area, i was hired in at lockheed martin in sunnyvale as a systems staff engineer to head a specific, be manager of a specific program, and i retired from lockheed martin 3 years ago. i think my major qualification is enthusiasm for walking in san francisco. it's a wonderful walking down, it has the potential of being really one of the great walking areas in the world. this enthusiasm has led me to notice there are issues with pedestrian safety and fortunately in this city where there are organizations covering just about everything that happens in the city, there are organizations associated with pedestrian safety, in particular in district 6 supervisor kim has an organization now run by sunny angelo on pedestrian safety and i have been attending those meetings and in fact have found them very interesting. when the mayor had the task force for pedestrian safety there was a subcomm
that they're tried out in other naikdz neighborhoods. soma is already experiencing incredible density and is really struggling to meet that density with infrastructure, whether it is transit and open space. and i think that it'sá ás÷ realy important that as we experiment or pilot this program, that we really study what the impact to those neighborhoods are, and are we adequately meeting those needs based on this policy. these smaller units would increase population -- could increase population in my district by as much as 32%. and i think that as we do this, it's important that we carefully study this. so i prosecute esh that we are going -- appreciate that we are going to move forward with this in this direction. >> president chiu: supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you. this one is kind of troubling to me. i don't think i read the same memo in everyone else. i thought i lived in a efficiency unit. a family of four, 950 square feet and every inch of space is used. and we're just totally crammed in. i live in a district that is 6500 more people more dense than it was 10
